Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and fitness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Michael Fulks, Founder & CEO of Immortal Protein, located in Las Vegas, NV, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
My name is Michael Fulks, and I'm the Founder and CEO of Immortal Protein LLC. Immortal Protein Compound Blend is not like any other protein powder on the market. This product was designed to help people that have stomach issues by using 40 billion probiotics per scoop. I have also added Colostrum and Maca Root for immune system problems and hormone balancing. There are 23.5 grams of Protein per scoop which will assist in feeding lean muscle mass. This product has zero sugar and only contains 5 grams of carbs. There is so much more, but this is just a sample of what makes Immortal Protein different. It is an indisputable fact that people are becoming more conscious about what they consume. Customers are looking for energy-boosting products to improve their physical endurance, mental acuity, and nutritional well-being.
For many years, protein supplements were only consumed by bodybuilders and other athletes who engaged in strenuous exercise. Where it was once a sports supplement used to build muscle, it is now incorporated into the diets of health-conscious people. Protein is a crucial macronutrient that supports the production of hormones and enzymes, as well as muscle growth and tissue repair. Taking a protein supplement may also help with weight loss, muscle toning, clear and healthy skin, stimulating the growth of healthy hair and nails, and many other benefits. But not all protein supplements are created equal, and few of them are actually good for your health. Immortal Protein has sourced the best proteins, vitamins, and herbs with the greatest bioavailability. Our unique blend aids in digestion, immune function, and recovery. The customers that have shown interest are those that have stomach issues, have hormone imbalances, and want overall health.
Tell us about yourself
Hello, my name is Michael Fulks, and I created Immortal Protein for all of you. Who am I, you might ask. Well, I'm just like you, A guy that sees what is happening to our bodies and knows we can be better. I spent over ten years as a personal trainer at NSCA and a massage therapist at Nevada Career Institute. I have seen so many different types of clients, from the young, elderly, handicapped, and diabetic. I personally watched my mom deal with an autoimmune disease called vasculitis that eventually took her life two years ago. I lost my father to a heart attack right after Christmas 2019. I myself have dealt with IBS since I was a child; I was a sick kid growing up and had strep throat nine times in one year. I had the worst stomach problems that made me feel like I had the stomach flu every day for months. I'm sharing all of this with you, so you understand why I created this product and why I believe in it so much. My passion and my commitment have always been to help people. The death of my mom and helping people change their lives motivate me every day.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment as a business owner would probably be when I first saw my product come off the line with a full label and everything! The feeling I felt and feel every day when I use and see my product brings a smile to my face. I know my mom would be very proud of what I'm doing and what the future of this company is about.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The hardest thing that comes when trying to start a business or keep one going is the amount of money it takes to get things started and the amount of time it takes to set up a website, market, and learn about all the paperwork that comes with it. However, the feeling of having something that is yours is priceless.
